New Berkeley Lab study finds that in reducing air temperatures, cool roofs can also reduce outdoor water use
20 Oct 2017
Based on regional climate simulations of 18 California counties, Berkeley Lab researchers Pouya Vahmani and Andrew Jones found that widespread cool roof adoption could reduce outdoor water consumption by as much as 9 percent. Their study, “Water conservation benefits of urban heat mitigation,” was published in the journal Nature Communications.
